BEST CAST RECORDING OF GYPSY!!!!
Posted by bernadette88 2003-08-23 16:16:40


HEY GUYS!! WHICH RECORDING OF GYPSY DO YOU THINK IS THE BEST AND WHY?? IT WOULD ONLY BE FAIR TO PUT YOUR 2 CENTS IN UNLESS YOU HAVE HEARD ALL FOUR. MINE WOULD BE GYPSY (2003/BERNADETTE) BECAUSE ONE IT CAME WITH 4 NEW TRACKS, AND 2 I THINK IT NOT ONLY CAPTURE THE GREAT SONGS OF THE SHOW BUT THE WONDERFUL EMOTIONAL ASPECTS THAT BERNADETTE AND TAMMY ADD! WHAT DO YOU THINK???

i have listened to them all and the 2003 revival is the best ... no one captures Rose like Bernadette. She shows emotions in a way that no one else can and i just love watching her on stage ... she shares it all until Roses Turn when she takes the entire audience thru such emotions and wow just writing this right now gives me goosebumps thinking of her performance!!

I hate Ethel Merman, as I have said many times, and I thought the OBCR was painful to listen to. My vote goes to the revival also.

I think all the recordings are great in their own way. I'm no fan of Ethel Merman, but I respect her interpretation. My favorite all around recording is the new one. But both the Angela and Tyne recordings have their points of excellence on the recordings.

For shear energy I say the original cast. You can't beat the overture on that one. I like Lansbury's vocals but the album sounds tinny. Tyne Daly's is best forgotten. I like the new one purely for the extras. Bernadette still sounds like a cupie doll to me (sorry).

I enjoy this recording. It is VERY complete and David Burtka's "All I Need Is The Girl" is really the only tolerable one I have heard on a cast album.

What? You didn't like Paul Wallace's version (OBC) of All I Need Is The Girl? It's the only one that does it for me.

BEST CAST RECOR

Doesn't anyone want to add Bette Midler's television version. Sure it is not a broadway cast recording but it is pretty good I thought. I like Bette's take of Mama Rose

I have Tyne's, Bette's, Ethel's and Bernadette's, but I dont have Angela's, and I think they are all good in their own right...

I have heard a lot of people defend Tyne's recording on the fact that she was "sick" when it was recorded. So to be fair, I went back and pulled her recording of Encores "Call Me Madam". I'm sorry, the woman is a great actress but she can't sing. She is flat and horrible sounding on that recording as well. Did she have bad luck and have another cold? The woman just can't sing.

I agree with PJ that each recording is different and wonderful in its own way. I do listen to more songs on the new one than I do from the old ones, and the new recording is my favorite overall, but their are some songs that can only be heard from certain singers in order for me to love the song.

Just a question: How can anyone own all of the recordings, except Angela's!?

I prefer The Television Special with Bette Midler, but that isn't a Boradway CAST recording. But still, that's the one I prefer.
